BONN, GERMANY—At 13:00 CEST on 7 November, the NDC Partnership and World Resources Institute will host a press conference at COP23 to launch Climate Watch, a powerful new platform offering comprehensive data for climate action. Developed in collaboration with 11 partner organizations including the UNFCCC, Climate Watch (accessible now at www.climatewatchdata.org) is destined to become the go-to resource for media, policymakers and researchers to visualize and download data on national and global climate actions for achieving Paris Agreement pledges, sustainable development, emission trends and more.
Members from across the NDC Partnership will be attending the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change COP23 in Bonn, Germany from 6-17 November.

WASHINGTON (October 31, 2017)– Following through on the landmark Paris Agreement means showing what countries are doing to meet their commitments and how they can ramp up ambition over time. For the first time, Climate Watch will bring together dozens of data sets onto one platform, including current and past greenhouse gas emissions, future emissions scenarios, sustainable development targets, progress towards meeting national climate pledges, information on climate risk and much more. Climate Watch will ensure policymakers and researchers are using the most accurate and comprehensive data for decision-making, and create the accountability and transparency necessary to combat climate change.
